Purpose

Familytree is used to create a family tree diagram. It must be preceeded by Familytree/start and followed by Familytree/end.

Usage

Example:

{{Familytree/start}}
{{Familytree | (symbols to designate the type of connection lines to include) }}
(additional repetitions of Familytree template, as needed)
{{Familytree/end}}

Each Familytree line can have as many values as needed, each separated by a pipe (|).

People listed in each Familytree line must first be assigned a three-letter code, then defined later in the line. The following example creates a box for Mortimer, Frida and an Unknown person, with a space in between each of them:

{{Familytree |MOR| |FRI| |UNK|MOR=Mortimer Goth|FRI=Frida Goth|UNK='''Unknown'''}}

Result:

Mortimer Goth
 
Frida Goth
 
Unknown


Note: the width of each box will be affected by boxes above or below them. As more repetitions of the Familytree template are used, the boxes should become more uniform in size.

Connection lines

Lines to connect character boxes together are designated by a single command. The commands are as follows:
